Come to Rainbow Island, where all your sexual fantasies will come true.
In Three Wishes, James, Guard and Damien, bring in three different couples for their special fantasy granting services. Handsome model Benji is tired of being perfect, and he wants to make his body his own. Thor, tattoo artist and piercer, as well as Dom, is just the man to do it. Will Benji find what he’s looking for?
Meanwhile, Alan and Roman are a long-time sub/Dom couple looking to have a few outside Masters give Alan all the things that Roman can’t. Will their relationship survive Alan’s strong reaction to one of the Masters?
The last couple to visit the island are Quinn and Pierce. Quinn has medical fetishes he’s embarrassed to tell his lover Pierce about even though Pierce is a doctor. So he’s going to get it out of his system in this safe environment. At least that’s the plan…
Don’t miss out on these fantasies come true.
I enjoyed reading about the 3 separate couples coming to the island to live out their fantasies. The book also highlights the 3 owners of the island, James, Guard and Damien. I’m a huge fan of BDSM and this
We read about Benji, the picture perfect model obsessed with body modifications, but too afraid to step foot into a tattoo/body piercing studio on his own. And Thor the badass Dom who’s looking for a full-time submissive, who happens to know a thing or two about tattoos and body piercings since he his own studio.
Then we come to Alan and Roman. Alan wants nothing more than to please his Master, Roman. So when Roman asks Alan to sub for other Doms who specialize in certain activities that Roman isn’t comfortable doing, Alan is only too eager to please. Only Alan isn’t prepared for the instant attraction he has to one of the Dom’s and it scares him so much he’s unable to finish the scene.
Finally, we have Quinn and Pierce. Quinn is afraid if Pierce finds out about his medical fetishes he won’t love him anymore. He wants to experience them on the island in the hopes of putting them in his past and leaving them there. What he isn’t prepared for, is for Pierce to be the one who was brought to the island to allow all the fantasies to come true. When Pierce discovers Quinn’s desires, it brings about a whole new set of desires from Pierce that both men are anxious to experience.
I can’t say that I’ve ever read any of Sean Michael’s books before so I’m very excited to read the next book in this series. I’m anxious to find out the conclusion between James, Guard and Damien. The author gives the reader snippets into the men’s past that has left James in a wheelchair and his 2 lover laden with guilt.
I have to say that I was complete surprised by just go much I really enjoyed this book. I knew that it would be an erotic book but I love that each of the three fantasies had a story line behind them and each story line was different from the last.
If I had to choose whose was my favorite it would have been Benji and Thor. I enjoyed the other two couples fantasies but Benji and Thor did not know one another before hand and they just clicked from the start. It was like they had always been together and because of the ability to have this fantasy two people came together and fell head over heals for each other.
But what I liked the most about this book was the story line behind Damien, Guard and James. You can tell there is a lot of hurt, guilt, love, passion, and pain between these three men and I cannot wait to see what exactly comes of the three of them in the next book in this series.
I have to say that Sean Michael did an amazing job on this book and has me on edge when it comes to reading the next book.
This book was great, but I’ve come to expect no less from Sean Michael. He writes primarily BDSM books (although he has written other types of books) but I do love his BDSM books. This book will definitely give you several different types of kink. I love how this author is able to eloquently write three total different types of stories of fantasy and combine it into one book. This book seems to have everything in it, from sweet to giving me my BDSM kinks. I have always loved Sean Michael’s writing style and in this book I was able to just read and enjoy and know that I was getting a great quality read. I don’t usually talk about the actual story as I like to review the author instead but I have to say that I can’t wait to read the second installment as I really need to find out the whole story between Guard, Damian and James. Overall this was another excellent story from an author I love to read as I can get my BDSM fix and still read about love.
Let me start this review by saying that I enjoy Sean Michael’s books. This was no exception.
I think that it lost 1/2 a star from me because we only were really given the three wishes, but at the beginning of the story, there was so much more hinted at. Without more details or a resolution, I felt that this was a very incomplete story – and, yes, while I understand that this is going to be a series, I was still wishing to have more background information on James, Guard and Damien.
First wish: Thor and Benji. These two were very opposite – personality wise, build wise and temperament. However, because this fantasy was one of Benji wanting to be dominated, it worked well enough. I thought that Michael did an amazing job at describing the artwork, as well as the emotions that Benji was going through. I could really see their story unfolding.
Second wish: Alan and Roman. This was my least favorite of them all. I thought that the premise was very intriguing, however, the delivery was less than stellar. I didn’t really think there was a conflict, per say in this scenario. It seemed that both parties wanted it to be exhibitionism and that this was the most tame of the wishes that the island provided. I also didn’t really like how I was left feeling that this wish was somehow truncated – did they end up with a deeper connection? Or just learn to avoid Alan being attracted? This fantasy was not super successful for me.
Third wish: Quinn and Pierce. This was a great fantasy that developed from an existing desire. I think that it was fairly successful because once you know their background, why they are there, everything seems to fall in to place. And, while they are still learning how to cope with desires and reality, you get to join them on their adventure. I liked the dynamic between these two characters a lot and felt that they had a great connection both while in scene and out of it. They had the most communication regarding their relationship and it felt that they were truly able to grow while living out their fantasy.
Overall, I liked this book. It was a quick read and even though I was disappointed that we were not given more on the main characters, I am hopeful that we will be given more in time.

Barring any of that? He’ll stick with writing his stories, thanks, and rubbing pretty bodies together to see if they spark.
